Vin 06 by mikecreighton Vin 06 by mikecreighton
I've recently become re-obsessed with the work of Jeff Simpson. I find his balance of figurative realism and expressive omission and mark-making incredibly compelling. This is a cheap knock-off / study of his aesthetic.

But in making this I discovered a new sense of being present – being observant both in my conscious and subconscious, which isn't something I experience in a lot of work I produce. I simultaneously accepted and corrected "mistakes" throughout the piece. And I didn't try to rush it all in a single sitting.

Anyway, this is a step towards finding a bit more joy in the larger act of creating. And a step towards letting go of getting everything just right.
